Robby the Robot, Airwolf, Stormtrooper... collectibles


This limited edition set features a jointed, posable die-cast metal Robby the Robot (also available seperately), with his transporter sled from the sci-fi classic Forbidden Planet (1956). Made by X-Plus of Japan, it's available from Comet Miniatures. See the link for more angles of the set.

A 1/48 scale die-cast Airwolf helicopter (from Aoshima) seen in the 1984 TV series - it has a revolving blade and all the external accessories seen in the series More details and pack shots from HobbyLink Japan here, also available from Comet Miniatures.

Not cheap, but highly desirable, is this super-realistic, 12 inch high, posable action figure of an original Star Wars Stormtrooper- it looks fantastic. Made by Medicom in Japan. More details on

I've also picked out these more unusual figures from the same
Real Action Heroes range from Medicom to show you...

Saya the vampire slayer, from anime Blood+

Ginko, from the anime Mushishi
